“Great Experience - Good Food, Exceptional Service and Nice Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We went to Luci's for dinner for my husband's birthday and had a great time. I had the salmon and it was done to perfection. My husband and our son both had pasta dishes and both were very good. Both the caesar salad and mixed green salad with goat's cheese were excellent. The Tahitian vanilla creme brûlée was the best I have ever tasted and was brought to my husband with a candle for his birthday, complimentary, which was very nice. The tarte tatin was good as well. There was a fairly extensive wine list with a good selection of nice wines. The service was excellent and it was very obvious that the owners had a real passion for their restaurant -- they were warm, friendly and took real pride in preparing and serving great food. The restaurant was very clean and the hostesses were in impeccably clean, white chef's aprons, which gives you a sense that the kitchen is run the same way. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants a nice meal at a reasonable cost. I would suggest making a reservation, since the restaurant is always quite busy.

“Nice restaurant for dinner in the Etobicoke area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Went here for a large group dinner - we dined in the separate private dining room. The restaurant is very nice (on the small side) so works well for special occasions as well as just a nice place to go for dinner with reasonable prices. The service here is top notch - all the staff were really great.

The food was good - we did a prix fixe menu - and it came with tons of food. The antipasto platter was delicious, the battered calamari great. The striploin steak was okay - cooked too rare for medium in my opinion but I suppose when you're serving for 20 people it can't all be right.

I would recommend this restaurant if you're going to be in the area or are trying to find a nice restaurant near Mississauga, as it is located about 10 minutes from downtown Toronto and 15 minutes from Mississauga.

“Food and Elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

When we walked into Luci the staff were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant had an elegant feel to it and was a romantic place for dinner. We began our meal with their asparagus appetizer. The asparagus, egg, and cheese complimented each other and were made to perfection. For our main course we ordered the pork loin wrapped in bacon and the grilled lamb chops. Both were served with vegetables and mashed sweet potatoes. Everything was divine. For dessert we ate the apple tart with ice cream and the meringue with sorbet inside of it - what a pleasant surprise. Everything was freshly made and service was superb. We definitely look forward to our next meal at Luci.

“Really nice neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We have eaten there twice and were impressed twice. The first time we were with friends.

The welcome from the owner is unique, so warm and friendly.
We were 6 and all enjoyed our meals. It has a definitely an Italian accent but with very contemporary flare. The menu offers meat fish and pastas.The service is very friendly and efficient. It was a birthday celebration and the desserts were on the house. What a nice gesture.

The second time we were there it was a bit of an adventure as they had problems with the power. Only half of the lights worked. It was pretty dark but everyone took it so well and there was a lot of laughter. Again the food was well prepared and the service excellent. Again we got a big plate of 4 desserts, on the house. This time to make up for the inconvenience of sitting in the dark. The desserts are to die for., pana cotta, creme brulee , panetone and bread pudding.
We intend to go back often.
